I do not crave donuts very often – but when I do – this is the only place I think of. Honey Dip is just a basic donut shop – nothing (and no one) fancy. There are about 25-30 varieties of donuts as well as some muffins and cookies. The regulars come in for coffee and lottery tickets.

Pumpkin donuts

The sign says it all – the pumpkin donuts are customer favorites. I really like the chocolate iced cruellers, the glazed old fashoned, and the whole wheat varieties.

One of my favorite holiday memories involves Honey Dip Donuts. It was the night before Thanksgiving (in 1986). We walked in when the shop was closing for the holiday weekend. As it turned out, they were giving donuts away since they were going to be closed for three days. We each took a couple boxes. Mix in a pint of chocolate milk, a long night and 6-8 donuts and I was not doing so well 2 hours later. I went back the following three Thanksgiving Eves but the magical donut giveaway never happened again.

So…. is it donut or doughnut????
